Man admitted to hospital for injuries after trying to stop a fight

Police and paramedics respond to a fight on 16th alley around 8:05 p.m. leaving one man injured.

Witnesses Laura Rose and a friend were out smoking when a fight broke out between two white males on 16th alley. Both of them seemed to be under the influence of alcohol, Rose said.

A bystander tried to break up the fight and got cut in the arm with a hatchet.

“The guy got cut a big chunk in the arm, super deep. Blood was gushing everywhere.” Rose said.

It’s unclear if the injured man is a University of Oregon student.

UO Alerts sent out a mass text messages asking students to stay away from the area at 8:13 p.m.

Police at the scene were not be able to comment on the case.

More to come.
